Hall Hunt interview in Orange & Blue Magazine

(Thanks Hall Hunt) There is an interview with Hall Hunt in the University of Florida magazine, Orange & Blue. Hall describes his start in competitive eating:

I was a manager of the UF women’s soccer team, and the coach, Becky Burleigh, liked to take us out to Dragonfly Sushi & Sake Co. for dinner. When she heard they were having a competition, she kind of challenged me to do it. I did really well, but couldn’t go to the finals because I was traveling with the team for the SEC Tournament.
